SOHO continues to explore the flavors of the U.S. Northwest, specifically Oregon and Washington, on flight night Wednesday, April 21.
First, SOHO will pour a 2006 Eyrie Estate Chardonnay from Willamette, Oregon. Eyrie Estate produces a unique and distinctly European Chardonnay, due to the fact that the vineyards were planted with vines originally imported from Burgundy, France, and the climate of the Willamette Valley closely mirrors that of Burgundy. Only 200 cases of the 2006 Chardonnay were produced, so please join us this week for a taste!
Next, SOHO will pour a 2007 Snoqualmie “Naked” Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley, Washington. The grapes for this Cabernet are certified organically grown and the wines are produced in a certified organic facility. The resulting wine offers a sweet berry fruit taste and soft finish.
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2007 Henry Estate Pinot Noir from Umpqua Valley, Oregon. SOHO wine expert Lars Snavely notes this wine is an excellent example of Oregon Pinot Noirs. The Henry Estate Pinot offers flavors of cherries and black pepper mixed with light overtones from the oak aging.
Chef Joe has created three new tapas plates to complement each wine. The following will be available through Wednesday, April 28:
